Humankind must now embark on the difficult journey beyond culture to the discovery of a lost self a sense of perspective. By holding up a mirror Hall permits us to see the awesome grip of unconscious culture. With concrete examples ranging from James Joyce's Finnegans Wake�to the mating habits of the bowerbird of New Guinea Hall shows us ourselves.
